Enable logical Layer 2 overlay extensions across a routed (L3) fabric within and across data center boundaries. Support for VXLAN-based network overlays.
Dynamic routing between virtual networks performed in a distributed manner in the hypervisor kernel, scale-out routing with active-active failover with physical routers. Static routing and dynamic routing (OSPF, BGP) protocols supported.
- Distributed firewalling
Distributed stateful firewalling, embedded in the hypervisor kernel for up to 20 Gbps of firewall capacity per hypervisor host. Support for Active Directory and activity monitoring. Additionally, NSX can also provide north-south firewall capability via NSX Edge.
VMware NSX is the network virtualization and security platform for the software-defined data center (SDDC), delivering the operational model of a virtual machine for entire networks. With NSX, network functions including switching, routing, and firewalling are embedded in the hypervisor and distributed across the environment. This effectively creates a "network hypervisor" that acts as a platform for virtual networking and security services. Similar to the operational model of virtual machines, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independently of underlying hardware. NSX reproduces the entire network model in software, enabling any network topology - from simple to complex multitier networks - to be created and provisioned in seconds. Users can create multiple virtual networks with diverse requirements, leveraging a combination of the services offered via NSX to build inherently more secure environments.
